My mum is 63 year old, has diagnosed Anemia and other problems like Arthritis, regular headaches, regular toothaches, regular earaches and many more.


They wont give her sicknesss benefits for years, previously she was on Jobseekers Allowance and Housing Benefit. Now since July 2019 she's been on Universal Credit.


Could she get sickness benefits and housing benefit?


What can she do to get sickness benefits and housing benefit, until getting Pension and housing benefit.


She speaks a bit more than basic English and can write English.
